So, how many years have you guys been going to school? And how many have you got back?

I myself have had about 15˝ years of school and I have about 2˝ years left... Wow, I have to get out of the school system. I use way too much time on it :p

I think it's been almost 17 years now with just two semesters left.

Take care all.

12-15-2006, 08:16 AM
I'm in my 19th--and final--year.

12-15-2006, 08:18 AM

13 years of public education (Kindergarten to grade 12)
1 full year of university
1 term of university
14 1/2 years of schooling

12-15-2006, 08:58 AM
11 years of public/highschool and one crap year of university

12-15-2006, 09:12 AM
11 of elementary / HS
5 of Engineering undergrad
4 of MBA
Way too many to be using only 10% of it

12 if you discount kindergarten, 13 if you do.
I plan to attend another 6, however, which would ultimately lead to 18 or 19 years of schooling...

12-15-2006, 09:34 AM
I believe I've been at school for around 17 years or so.

On a similar note: I just finished my last final exam today! University classes are done now as of tonight! :D

12-15-2006, 09:58 AM
13 and a half years :p (one semester of college)

12-15-2006, 10:03 AM
I've been in school for 13 years! :D

And I have another five years! :whimper:

12-15-2006, 10:09 AM
I've been at school for 12 years, college for 1, I've got one year left and then I've got another 2 one-year courses after that. Then uni in a few years time. So... 13 years 3 months done, 2-5 to go.

I graduated high school (12th grade). That's it so far.

Probably around 15 years, though I am on an extended health-related break at the moment. :)

Starting 11th year next year. I already skipped two years of education due to some OUTSTANDING RESULTS LOLOLOLOL in some government exams, if not next would be my 14th.

12-15-2006, 10:56 AM
I intend to setup a school to show the world what is PROPER EDUCATION. :bigsmile:

12-15-2006, 11:10 AM
11 years. One more to go of senior high. Then ages left for Uni.

11 years.

12-15-2006, 11:26 AM
5 of Elementary School (1st Grade to 5th Grade)
3 of Middle School (6th - 8th)
3 1/2 of High School (9th to presently nearing the end of my first semester of 11th)

And I'm in the middle of my Junior Year of High School. After this, just one more year to go. What a head rush! :p

12-15-2006, 12:29 PM
<s>I dropped out when I was a sophomore. Sooooo.... 11 years of formal education counting kindergarten.</s>

13 years. I graduated high school. I should've went to college but I didn't feel like it.

12-15-2006, 12:40 PM
Thirteen and half years. Today begins the finals for the Fall semester.

12-15-2006, 12:50 PM
So far, 17, but I plan on continuing for more education. :)

Lets see...

12 years in school
2 years in college
one term in university

well, one term minus 5 hours if you want to include the next 5 hours of labs I've got to go to...

that makes 14 years, and one term minus 5 hours

I plan to spend the next 4 years in uni to get a degree, and probably another 3 or 4 after that for a phD qualification, but I'm not sure if that counts as schooling since it'll be my own research more or less...

My mum jokes I'll never leave :D

12-15-2006, 12:53 PM
11 years of school, now 2 years of college and then 3 years of University. :jess:

12-15-2006, 12:58 PM
im in my 9th year.( 8th Grade.

12-15-2006, 01:09 PM
Senior kindergarten to grade 11. That's 12 years :D

12-15-2006, 01:15 PM
I may be getting out of school, but not in a good way. I just had the worst semester ever, and I fear it may be unrecoverable, and that I may be killed for it...


12-15-2006, 02:26 PM
12˝ years so far. I have half a year left until I'm finished with the Danish version of High School and then I'll begin on some sort of education at the university that'll probably take around 4 years or so.

12-15-2006, 02:47 PM
Not including the kindergarten, I've been in school for 13˝ years. This year is currently my 3rd year in the university, and my 14th year in school in general.

12-15-2006, 03:16 PM
17 years.

*starts the countdown until graduation this spring*

12-15-2006, 03:26 PM
Let's see...

Kindergarten (1) + elementary school (8) + high school (4) + university (4)

16 without kindergarten, 17 with (yay--I can do math!).

I also did a stint in two different preschools/daycare schools. That would be another three years.

All in all, I spent every non-holiday weekday (that I was not ill or on vacation or had some other commitment for) during the "school year" at an institution of learning of one kind or another from age 3 to 22.

12-15-2006, 03:28 PM
I'm in my 18th year. Currently, I'm training to be a teacher, so my chances of getting out of the education system again are limited.

12-15-2006, 04:40 PM
About 10 years. :bigsmile:

204 years and counting. It is true what they say. You never stop learning.

Almost 9 years I'd say. :bigsmile:

6 of Elementary School (Kindergarten to 5th Grade)
3 of Middle School (6th - 8th)

12-15-2006, 05:26 PM
I didnt include kindergarden....But 4 years of college to get a Bachelor's. If you can't get a decent job with a bachelor's, a master's isnt gonna help much for the money its gonna cost you...

12-15-2006, 05:41 PM
1 year of nursery
2 terms of reception
5 years of primary school (I skipped a year)
5 years of compulsory secondary school
And a term of sixth form.

So 12 years of school overall.

I think it's been about 11 or 12 years total now, though some of those were in home-schooling while I was unwell.

12-15-2006, 08:41 PM
Seventeen as of this final year of undergrad work. Another five to seven years if I decide to go all the way, though. I'm actually looking forward to it more than I previously thought because graduate work is very different from the undergrad work.

12-15-2006, 08:42 PM
13 1/2. High school and one semester of college.

12-15-2006, 08:46 PM
5 years, K through 4
4 years, 5 through 8 (don't ask why it's not three years)
2.5 years, Freshman year to middle of Junior year

For a grand total of three hundred twenty nine years spent in school.

Year 11 now. So maybe 11.

12-15-2006, 09:14 PM
Finished all education, now I'm a big lazyass who slacks at work, WHOO.

12-15-2006, 09:25 PM
Urgh you expect me to work it out? Probably about 10 or 11.

12-15-2006, 09:26 PM
12th year right now. :D

12-15-2006, 10:15 PM
If you count pre-school, than 17 years. I wish I were done already. :(

Only 3 more semesters to go...

Let's see, three years of little school, four of primary, five of comprehensive, two of college, one of uni last year and one of new uni this years. That's sixteen years of my life in education. Wow. Sounds pretty big.

12-15-2006, 11:39 PM
This is my 13th 1/2 year if you count preschool :) I'm a Junior in high school currently and I'm looking for about 4 years of college after I graduate T_T That's a lot of time to spend in school...

I'm a high school freshman now, and I plan on continuing my education for as long as I need it to to get a medical degree.

12-16-2006, 03:21 AM
1 Kindergarten
12 Public School
4 College
2 1/2 Graduate School
19 1/2. One semester left until I have my Master's degree. woot.

12-16-2006, 04:52 AM
16 years so far. I'm taking a break, I still have 2 more to go, maybe more.

I completed high school and went into full time work, that means 13 years for me in NZ schooling. I may go for a degree later in life, but at the moment I'm doing fine without one. I'd only get one for the sake of learning more, really, because I do enjoy that.

12-19-2006, 11:59 PM
Nice one shiva.

19 years for me, including kinder. But then, kinder was fairly inconsistent as I only went for a few weeks.


I have both teaching and research commitments (since 2005). Hence, work is almost preferred (more accurate) than school.
